Farmers and Water

Using water, the way we do, means this . . .


we will be asked to conserve water

more water will be needed as more and more people move in

farmers will be asked to cutback their water use, even more

more water will be conserved (individually)

more water will be used (overall)

farmers will go out of business (individually)

when all the conservation has done all it can

and yet demand increases

(and after wet years, and dry ones again)
we will attempt to recycle our remaining water

— from sewage, or the polluted ocean, or anywhere
we will do anything to get enough water

and our food will come from other countries.
And politics will decide if we eat.
